Dog found in St. Helena

This very friendly dog was found Sunday night on Hunt Avenue. He has no tags and no chip, but he seems to be well cared for. He might have been struck by a car, and the vet says he might have a sprained paw, but the injury is minor and he will be fine. If he is yours, please pick up at the St. Helena Police Department, 1480 Main St.
